Oh my goodness! What an amazing view plus the best grouper on the island. We came for lunch & were seated @ the end of the pier where all of the boats come in & out. We started w/ceviche & there's a reason it's listed...More

At the end of a pier over the water sits this restaurant. We first discovered this place for lunch. I ordered the grilled grouper sandwich. This was the best, freshest fish sandwich I have ever had. The piece of fish was such a good size,...More

We’ve eaten lunch and had drinks here a number of times. It’s on a pier (right past the Holiday Inn) so you’re sitting right on the water. Sandwiches, burgers, wraps and the like. We really liked the grouper sandwich and had it several times while...More

The views were spectacular - the food was also really good! I ordered off of the appetizer menu and got more food than my husband did via the regular dinner menu. Would return when in Aruba again!

The grouper sandwich is awesome. The calamari was good also. The drinks are great too. Service was friendly.

The food was ok. The scenery and ocean breeze was nice. The service was satisfactory but was not too attentive.

The menu says that their grouper sandwich is the best on the island. Based on my extensive research conducted during our 12 day stay, I would have to say that they aren't lying. Ate lunch here three times and was satisfied (and full) every time...More

A fun open air place to get a nice adult beverage and some seafood. The views are nice as it is on the water. It can get quite busy, so plan accordingly.

Pretty good food. I love being near or on water so this place is ideal if you feel the same way. We were wandering around town last evening and followed a large group in, not expecting to be seated. Well it was a Wednesday evening...More

We set the reservation for the sunset and enjoyed a wonderful setting for such. The waiter that helped us was initially attentive but clearly struggled to provide any valuable information about the menu selections. The grouper and shrimp entrees were very tasty and cooked well....More

Meals are comparable to US prices for a vacation area. 2 adults could have drinks apps and meals for $60 - $150 depending on what you get and how much you drink and eat. Very casual for a beach day lunch and casual low key... More

I am pretty sure they take credit cards, I didn't pay the restaurant directly, we ate there as part of an excursion deal, we paid for dinner directly to the tour desk at the Holiday Inn.
